Guns from Atomic Heart Amaze Weapons Expert

Atomic Heart's Guns Amuse a Weapons Expert

An expert on firearms compares the various upgradeable weapons in Atomic Heart to real firearms.

Despite being a science fiction game, Atomic Heart has a few weapons that could be considered to be more realistic, and a firearms expert has provided an analysis to determine how accurate these weapons are in comparison to real firearms. The alternate history and science fiction components of Mundfish's first-person shooter set in the Soviet Union are influenced by titles like BioShock and Fallout. Despite receiving a mixed response upon release, the game is at least a marginally unique IP in a sea of similar titles.

However, there has been discussion surrounding Atomic Heart. Ukraine has requested that Microsoft, Sony, and Valve forbid the game due to its strong Russian themes because the game's story takes place in the 1950s, at the height of the fictional Soviet Union. As of this writing, Atomic Heart is still available, but the controversies don't end there. The FPS's inclusion of a vintage cartoon with a racial stereotype that many players found offensive has also drawn criticism. Overall, the game's start hasn't been the best.

Despite this, Atomic Heart is still a fun shooter, and a weapons expert thought it was good enough to analyze some of the game's weapons. Expert on firearms and Keeper of Firearms & Artillery at the Royal Armouries in the UK, Jonathan Ferguson frequently weighs in on the subject of video game weapons. He examines each of Atomic Heart's weapons in his most recent video to see how they stack up against their actual counterparts. Due to the Kalash's modeling of an AK-47, it is actually quite accurate.Because of the upgrades' more irrational and obnoxious nature, Ferguson finds them amusing. He is aware that developers sometimes err, especially in science fiction, though. It's also intriguing to see that he calls the Electro the game's "Fallout-iest" weapon.

Ferguson is not disparaging Atomic Heart's weapons in any way, however. He simply wants to know how they compare to real firearms. He does, however, have some issues with the Fat Boy's slowly spinning projectile, but only from a gameplay standpoint. Additionally, the expert has examined the weapons in GoldenEye 007 and the Half-Life series, and there will undoubtedly be more videos in the future.

Fans continue to enjoy Mundfish's FPS in spite of the controversy. In fact, a mind-boggling speedrun of Atomic Heart was recently completed in just seven minutes. Despite the recent backlash, it is obvious that the game is being enjoyed by a large number of people.

Atomic Heart is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
